THRIVE Community Group

The THRIVE Community Group is a meeting of like-minded and like-hearted community researchers and community partners committed to bridging the gap between research and community service. The group gathers regularly to discuss ongoing projects, discuss community needs, foster relationships with community partners and interdisciplinary researchers, and support each other in developing ongoing community-engaged research.

The project was started as a THRIVE initiative but is run independently by a steering committee of researchers from throughout the W&M campus. 

Steering committee:

Danielle Dallaire
Professor of Psychological Studies

Monica Griffin
Director of Engaged Scholarship and the Sharpe Community Scholars Program

Daniel Gutierrez
Assistant Professor of Counselor Education

Patrick Mullen
Assistant Professor of School Counseling

Iyabo Obasanjo
Assistant Professor of Kinesiology and Health Sciences

Melody Porter
